OBITUARIES:  (published Oct. 5, 2017)

Lois E. Anderson
Lois E. Anderson, nee Feyer, 88, of Hinsdale, passed away Sept. 27, 2017, in her home surrounded by family.
   Lois was born to German immigrants, Herbert and Paula Feyer, in 1929 at Hinsdale Hospital. She attended public primary and secondary schools, graduating from Hinsdale High School at the former Washington Street location. After graduation Lois became an Illinois Bell telephone operator at the Hinsdale location, manually connecting callers with wires and plugs.
   On Jan. 26, 1951, she married Gilbert S. Anderson (who passed away on May 16, 1994). Shortly after their marriage, they moved into the home that Gil built, where they raised their family.
   A stay-at-home mom until her children reached high school age, Lois worked at the new Clarendon Hills Osco Drug, then at Keller-Heart Oil Co., also in Clarendon Hills, until the demand for heating with fuel oil diminished. She was then employed by the company that did medical billing for Hinsdale Hospital’s radiologists until her retirement. Lois remained a lifelong resident of Hinsdale and lived in the home Gil built until her passing.
   Lois and Gil were members of the Loyal Order of Moose (Downers Grove), forming lasting friendships in many Lodge functions, bowling leagues and the Keenagers Club. Lois enjoyed her many senior outings with various local park districts and was an active member of the “Lois Club” and its local luncheons and out-of-state conventions. She enjoyed knitting winter hats and mittens for her family, and continued knitting hats and mittens to donate to various charitable organizations.
   Lois is survived by her son, Steve (Stacey) Anderson; her daughter, Pam (Dave) Bolton; her two grandsons, Nicholas (Nancy) Anderson and Adam Anderson; and her brother, Herb (Marsha) Feyer.
   Interment is private.
   In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made online to the American Cancer Society at or to the National Kidney Foundation at
   Sullivan Funeral Home in Hinsdale handled the arrangements.
